It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
Easily Switch UI with Today Switcher
One of the best things about Windows Mobile devices is that we can customize the look of the screen that we see when we turn on the device. The Today screen is a playground for the creativity of makers of user interfaces (UI). The only problem is that we cannot use all of them simultaneously. Moreover, changing from one to the next requires the user to travel through the Settings menu to accomplish that.
In the spirit of making our lives simpler, XDA member and moderator mskip has come up with a small app that allows you to change the UI with the touch of a button. It works with most of today’s most popular interfaces such as Mobile Shell, Sense, Manila, among others. This simple to use app is bound to make your experience with WM much more enjoyable.
Easily switch between Microsoft Today, HTC Sense\TouchFLO3D\TouchFLO, Spb Mobile Shell!!
I also wanted to be able to put links on the Spb Mobile Shell and HTC Sense Screens for easy running so I made seperate programs with icons for Microsoft Today, HTC Sense\TouchFLO3D\TouchFLO and Spb Mobile Shell so you can switch at the click of a button.
It should work regardless of which language Rom you use.
After install it will be in the Start Menu, Programs, Shell Sense Switcher Folder. The Htc Sense link should work for HTC Sense (newer Roms) or TouchFlo3D.
You can find more information about this app in the application thread.

More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
